CSA: Green Gate Farms
Operates: year round
Our CSA offers members a farm experience in a historic setting just a few miles east of downtown Austin. Members are encouraged to play and participate at the farm. With more than 100 rare breed animals -- including newborn Guinea Hogs -- a Children's Garden, Herb Garden, Outdoor Cooking Pavillion, Firepit, Horse riding, Canoeing, and Camping there is always something to do.
We have an open-door policy for volunteering, events, picnicking.
Shares are picked up at our farm, Tuesday, Friday or Saturday, and distributed in neighborhoods like Hyde Park, at work sites, at Mueller Farmers Market on Sundays and at schools like UT Charter Elementary, Khabele.
You're welcome to organize your own pick-up location. By doing this you become our Community Organizer and receive free food for administering a group of 10 or more members. Weekly flower shares and eggs can also be added.
Our farm stand is open to the public Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. WIC/SNAP accepted. Members can also purchase pastured meats, dairy, honey, eggs, flowers or supplement their share.
Each weekly share includes 8-10 varieties of certified organic vegetables bursting with flavor. We make an effort to combine familiar veggies (broccoli, cauliflower) with more unusual things (garlic scapes, tatsoi) in each share. A weekly newsletter explains the share contents, provides recipes and gives farm news. Best of all, one of our CSA members, Robin Arutt, is a nutritionist who is available to provide advice on how to use and store your share.
